I miss you

As we glide through various phases
Of this seemingly endless tour called life
Our being stares challenges in the eyes
We become stronger with every hurdle we overcome
We age with every second that strikes
The oscillatory nature of humanity
Feeds us from the menu of boredom
Making life a dreary ride
But there are moments worth recalling
Moments spent in your presence
Where life’s meaning is but a dream
Every second is cherished to infinity
The senseless nothings that made me beam a smile
Your vivacity deflowering my gloomy lips

When I glance across my room
My shadow is my only company
Why am I tormented by visions of you?
Why do I feel that your appearance
Will be an antidote to my emptiness?
I am pierced deeply by the sting of your absence
The pain is insufferable
It amplifies my misery.
And my remnant only hopes for your return
I have nothing else to do
But sit still and keep missing you.

The poem, as subtle as it may sound, is what some people go through after a break-up...the sit still and await the return of the other...and often times, the other never returns.

Lovely poem...can't even expect anything less from u Oracle. Your poems are always beautiful! :)
